- You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
- If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
- If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see topic “Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do” below;
- If you have just changed your mind about the product, see this clause 8. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, except for the goods that you do not have right to change your mind (see clause 8); but this may be subject to deductions for any losses we may sustain as a result of the contract coming to an end and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods (see our Delivery & Return Rates);
- In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see the last bullet under this clause 8.
- Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control and you do not wish to accept any delay to the delivery date;
- we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than one month; or
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late as per this clause 8.
- Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within fourteen (14) days (“cooling-off period” or “cancellation period”) and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
- When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
- Expiry of the cooling-off period;
- Services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
- products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them and the products cannot be re-sold or re-used after their return;
- any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
- How long do I have to change my mind? Depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
- Have you bought services? If so, you have fourteen (14) days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
- Have you bought goods? if so, you have fourteen (14) days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
- Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until fourteen (14) days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
- Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period (for example every week). In this case you have until fourteen (14) days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
- Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them in full. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately, and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund amount our return delivery costs, if any (see our Delivery & Return Rates).

- Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services using the details set out in clause 2 for a return label or to arrange collection.
- Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT at the prevailing rate) will be the price indicated on the order page when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see bullet 3 under this clause 12 (“What happens if we got the price wrong”) for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
- We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
- What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
- When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with most credit and debit cards, details of which will be set out on the payment page of our payment provider. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
- For goods, you must pay for the products at the finalization of the order.
- For services, [you must make an advance payment of 100% of the price of the services, before we start providing them.

Contract Cancellation and Returns Procedure for Furniture Orders
- You have right to exercise cancellation for the furniture orders within fourteen (14) days upon the delivery to you, even the delivered good to you is not damaged or defective and is reflecting exactly what you have ordered, subject to below listed conditions. Please note that the bespoke furniture manufactured or upholstered as per your preferences could not be subject to cancellation and return unless those were damaged or defective at the time of the delivery to you.
If you wish to cancel your order once your order has been dispatched, please note the following procedure will apply:
- Should you wish to return a furniture item, we will arrange to collect this item from you and will apply an appropriate return collection charge.
- See our Delivery & Return Rates regarding the return collection charge to be applied and will be deducted from the refund value when processed.
- To arrange a collection, please contact the customer service team using the details set out in clause 2.
- Sazy reserves the right to refuse a refund on the item, should it not be returned in a fully resaleable condition.
- You will be reimbursed to the card with which you paid for the goods once the goods have been received back into our warehouse subject to deductions stated hereabove. Please note that your original delivery charges will not be refunded. A refund of the delivery charge will only be given in the instance of incorrect, damaged, or faulty goods.
- You will be responsible for providing access to the delivery address as necessary for the delivery. You must also ensure that access is suitable for the delivery of your goods, for example a wide enough doorway, sufficient space to manoeuvre the goods through your abode, a road accessible road to the delivery van and parking permits made available at your own cost, if required.
- Where there is any doubt, we suggest you conduct a site survey prior to placing your order and then make us aware of any issues, so we can discuss the best way of delivering to you. We will not pay for any additional charges or damages caused to your goods or property due to access issues that are not advised and agreed upon in advance.
- We retain the rights to cancel your order or to fulfil the delivery to you at the front door of your delivery address, in the event we are not able to place the order with our supplier into your desired place due to the inaccessibility. If we cancel the contract in such a case, we will refund all payments in full except for the bespoke furniture manufactured or upholstered as per your preferences but we will not be required to pay out any compensation and we will be entitled to deduct carriage and return delivery costs from your return (see our Delivery & Return Rates).
- The dimensions given in the product description are written for your guidance. Before ordering, please ensure that there is adequate room to take the furniture through any doorways and windows, taking note of any restricted passageways, stairs and awkward turns. Please refer to our Measurement Guidelines under each product for further information.
- Wood. With exposure to light and air, cherrywood, maple and oak will mature to a deeper colour. This will be most pronounced in cherrywood, which mellows to a deep copper colour. For this reason objects placed on surfaces could leave 'shadows' when removed. Should this happen, exposure to daylight will eventually darken these paler areas.
- Leather. Leather is a natural product and each hide will have its own individual characteristics and natural marks. Differences in the grain, texture and colour may be apparent from one hide to another and even within the same hide. We select only hides of the highest quality, but some marking is inevitable and should be accepted as part of the individual appearance of leather furniture.
Short Delivery, Defective or Damaged Goods
- We strongly advise you to thoroughly check your goods upon receipt. To protect your interests, any claim concerning short delivery and/or damaged and/or defective goods found on delivery or concerning damaged or defective goods found at a later date, must be notified as soon as possible to our customer services department using the details set out in clause 2 above. We do not accept any claims for damage caused by you.
- We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
- We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products, including the right to receive products (a) matching with the product descriptions and/or information provided by us or (b) same as the sample or model seen or examined by you or (c) which are as described and match with the information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987
- When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
- We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
- We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract . If you are unhappy with the transfer, you may contact us to end the contract within one month of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
- You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We reserve the right not to agree to this, in our absolute discretion, in certain circumstances.
- Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
- If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
- Alternative dispute resolution.
- Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use (for furniture purchases, please see the following bullet below). You can submit a complaint to Consumer Arbitration via their website at https://consumerarbitration.co.uk. Consumer Arbitration will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings.
- For unresolved complaints regarding furniture, you can contact The Furniture & Home Improvement Ombudsman for impartial advise. Established by the government in 1992, the Furniture & Home Improvement Ombudsman is an independent not-for-profit organisation which specialises in providing alternative dispute resolution services for consumers and businesses in the retail, furniture and home improvement sectors.
